Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The assessment of knowledge and skills acquired by students during teaching and learning
is done by carrying out two evaluation moments (M1 and M2), classified
from 0 to 10 values.
The final teaching and learning classification, TLC, from 0 to 10 points, is calculated as follows:
Exemption from the final exam is granted when the final teaching and learning classification is equal
or greater than 9.5 values.
All assessments carried out during the semester will be face-to-face if the
necessary conditions are granted, otherwise they will be carried out online.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
